    Thanks for the review. Be curious to know how the Partagas Series P compares to the Series D (my personal fav).

    The P2 is actually milder than the D, also one of my personal favorites. Not as much pepper, a tad sweeter in my view and not as “heavy” or firm. The draw on the P2 is easier and the cigar. The easiest way to describe it is that the P2 is a milder younger brother to the D4.

    I hope that helps. Thanks for reading and for commenting.

    Great review of a great cigar. A bit milder than the D4 but similar Partagas flavor profile. I get them for $225 a box. Far better than the Monte2.

    Thanks for the kind words Jmorena.

    Though not a bad cigar at all, I find that the Monte 2 gets a little more admiration than it deserves. Still a fine smoke but I place it 3rd behind the Upmann 2 and Partagas P2. Of course taste and flavor is purely subjective. What someone may love, I may hate and vice versa.

    I’m looking forward to the new Cohiba Pirámides Extra, the first figurado in the regular-production Cohiba line to see how that stacks up. Of course they will be so new that it will take a couple of years to really gauge them.

    Regards,

    The P2 is my personnal favorite, and I totally agree with you, between the MC2 and H. upmann 2, it’s only a question of taste, I find they are all succulent and are quiet in a different class of flavors, not very comparable… Just a question 6.6$ per stick for the P2 is unhear, could you share your source with me (in private if you wish).

    Tuluy, as I noted in the review, the $6.60 is the current price for this stick in Cuba. Off the Island you can expect to pay even more. Hope that helps. My source for the cigar reviewed was La Casa Del Habano in Varadero.

    Love an aged P2, but when you get a Monte #2 that is “on”, it is pretty spectacular.

    If I were to choose between a P2 and a Monte No. 2, I think I’d also go with the latter. One of the finest smokes around, IMO, and the construction has been decent lately.

    One of my favs and not overly expensive. Jealous of the guy who can get them at $225 a box. $285 is the best I’ve seen!

    My first No#2 was from a CT sampler – and very impressive. Always enjoyed Partagas for their flavour. These are great sticks. Class construction/burn/draw.

    Seems that many of you have never experienced a true Monte 2. There is a reason it is the most recognized cigar in history.

    One of the few Habanos Puros that has maintained a consistent flavour profile over the course of the previous three decades. However, construction is somewhat inconsistent these days. Spicy, leathery, woody, somewhat astringent. Finishes nicely if constructed properly.
